How do I feed them?
The skinny cat is 10 years old and has always been skinny without any medical issues. The fat cat is just under a year old and eats like a piggie. Ever since getting the kitten, the older cat has gotten thinner. I can clearly see why. Everytime she tries to eat, little fattie pushes her out of the way and eats! Even if she has just eaten!
After 10 years of leaving the food out for the older one to pick at as she pleases (which she does. She doesn’t eat at any “regular” interval), I would hate to now limit feeding times to a certain amount and time each day for her.
But the little (BIG!) one needs to be limited! Any tips? Thanks!!

@heathaah: Can you prop a door open only wide enough for skinny cat to get through? And put the skinny cat’s food behind the door so he can eat as he pleases while the fat cat can’t fit?

I got my fat cat to lose a lot of weight by switching to a grain free food. Maybe then you can have two skinny cats!

I had this problem, too. What worked for me was to take one of those large rubbermaid storage containers and flip it upside down, cut door hole big enough for the skinny cats and too small for the fat cat and then put food inside. So the skinny cats can eat whenever they want and the fat cat only gets meals.

I foster cats and have one very fat cat that I adopted years ago. The fat one would eat constantly if you let him! usually foster cats are underweight and need to gain. Unfortunatly, I have to keep dry food out and feed them wet food on a schedule and lock the foster cats in a seperate room until they eat their wet food. Plus, I always keep their food places in seperate rooms to help distinguish
